Fish have got to be the most rubbish pets.

I bought Nick 5 goldfish for our garden pond last week. Knowing Nick was going to be late home, I decided that it was cruel to keep them in the bag for all those hours so released them into the pond.

All 5 of them immediately disappeared into the weeds and have not been seen since.

Poor Nick, he goes out every morning with his fish food and hopefully sprinkles some into the water, desperately searching for signs of the little buggers. Nothing. This morning he resorted to poking the plants with a stick to see if he could scare the fish into making an appearance. He thinks saw a flash of red, but that was it.

As I said before, rubbish pets.

they are rubbish - we got eight of them a few weeks ago and a huge tank - they don't do much and I don't buy the story that they are relaxing to watch - because they're too boring. Now kittens on the other hand are great - we got 3 on Friday. They play and climb and tumble about and make us laugh so much. very cute!!! Can't wait until the kittens spot the fish tank!!!

I always thought Goldfish were just put on the earth to teach small children about death.

Glenn used to have a lovely tank of tropical fish. But then the thermostat went and we ended up with a tank of warm, pungent fish soup.
